Leading Edge Group and HealthCareCAN Partnership
Leading Edge Group and HealthCareCAN Announce Expanded Partnership
Toronto, Ontario – April 26th, 2017.
Leading Edge Group and HealthCareCAN are delighted to announce an expanded strategic partnership that provides a wide range of education and training offerings to support the learning needs of healthcare professionals in a variety of the areas – most notably, quality improvement, change, leadership and management.
“CHA Learning’s mandate is to develop ‘people’ capacity within the health system. It is critical to our ability to serve our healthcare members that we establish strong partnerships with other innovators and leaders in the area of professional development. Healthcare doesn’t need more people inventing the same wheels. They need us assembling these wheels and lining them up to move everyone forward as effectively as possible. That is our value to our members.”
Dale Schierbeck, VP Learning & Development, HealthCareCAN
The expanded partnership is aimed at providing the most valuable services and benefits to the Canadian healthcare system, commencing with an integration of each organization’s complementary programs.
As a global leader in the delivery of continuous improvement and business transformation training and consulting, Leading Edge Group has been serving the Canadian health sector for the past decade through providing Lean Healthcare expertise and healthcare-specific training and education programs.
“Leading Edge Group has collaborated with HealthCareCAN since 2010. Given how both our organizations have grown and expanded our service offerings, it makes perfect sense to broaden and deepen our partnership to best serve the needs of the health sector in Canada. We are excited to now offer relevant CHA Learning programs to complement our continuous improvement training, thereby providing healthcare organizations and individuals with expanded continuous quality improvement knowledge and skills. Likewise, we look forward to working with CHA Learning to offer new innovative and relevant services and programs for healthcare in 2017.”
John Whelton, VP North American Operations, Leading Edge Group
